Angel Flight - jQuery Animation

"Angel Flight" illustrates what one can do to animate a site without using any Flash. I used only HTML, CSS, and a jQuery code called "Spritely", developed by London based company Artlogic, to achieve these effects. I am also featured on Spritely's gallery page.

Digital Illustration

Adobe PhotoShop, and Illustrator

This gallery showcases digital graphic paintings and Illustration created with Adobe software. My background as a non-digital graphic designer and illustrator allows me to create intricate and beautifully rendered images. You can see some examples of my non-digital work in the last gallery.


Underwater Sculpture

Digital Illustration Typography and Video

I created this page to showcase the brilliant work of British Sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor. I used a video from YouTube to embed into the page using a Longtail Video player and skin to enhance the look of the page and message of the showcase.


Non-Digital Illustration and Painting

Here are some examples of my work as a non-digital illustrator. I have mastered using most artist's media, but I prefer using the most current software to create this type of work.

What sets me apart from most other designers, is my ability to utilize my skill sets as a painter and illustrator to deliver extremely well executed digital work. As you can see, I am highly proficient in the use and manipulation of color, layout, typography and design.
